Synopsis: Now in Paperback

In  Dime-Store Alchemy, poet Charles Simic reflects on the life and work of Joseph Cornell, the maverick surrealist who is one of America?s great artists. Simic?s spare prose is as enchanting and luminous as the mysterious boxes of found objects for which Cornell is justly renowned. 

Product Description: Brilliantly exploring the life and work of American artist Joseph Cornell, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Simic utilizes a series of short prose pieces that scavenge the dark corners of New York City by way of the nooks and crannies of his own imagination, creating the literary equivalent of Cornell's art.
